Golf Betting Tips: Jon Rahm to seek REDEMPTION at Memorial?

Jordan Spieth represented GolfMagic's closest betting call last week at the Memorial Tournament as the Texan came tied seventh. He will be back this week to play at the Memorial Tournament, an event that saw Jon Rahm denied another win on the PGA Tour as he tested positive for Covid-19 while holding a six-shot lead in 2021. Matt and Andy are back with four fresh selections for the event at Muirfield Village.

Jon Rahm's withdrawal from the Memorial Tournament last season was one of the most controversial talking points on the PGA Tour in 2021.

The Spaniard looked on course to pick up what would've been his sixth tour win. His disappointment seemed to act like motivation as he went on to win the US Open in his next appearance.

The World No.2 will be joined by the likes of the 2021 champion Patrick Cantlay, Collin Morikawa, Viktor Hovland, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Cameron Smith.

Bryson DeChambeau has also flown into Ohio in an attempt to finally kickstart his season in 2022. The former US Open champion had to withdraw from the US PGA Championship due to an ongoing wrist problem.

Jason Day and Rickie Fowler hold sponsorship exemptions to play this week as both need to rediscover the form that has made them multiple PGA Tour winners.

Take a look below at our best bets for the 2022 Memorial Tournament.


Jon Rahm - 10/1 (BET365)

We will begin with Jon Rahm. He took Muirfield Village by storm last season with rounds of 69, 65 and 64 including a hole-in-one. He also won this event in 2020 and it is a course where the former World No.1 feels at home. Rahm won the Mexico Open earlier this season and although the Spaniard hasn't been as electric as he was in 2021, he has still made five top-10s in 12 events.

Davis Riley - 50/1 (BET365)

How Davis Riley is still ranked 94th in the world is beyond us. The American has made four top-10s in his last five events and he finished tied 13th at the US PGA Championship. He finished second at the Valspar Championship too, which shows he is on the cusp of his first PGA Tour win. The 25-year-old is ranked 10th in birdie average this season and he is 20th in the FedEx Cup standings.

Patrick Cantlay - 16/1 (BET365)

Patrick Cantlay may have been fortunate to win the Memorial Tournament in 2021, but his form at this event is no fluke. He also won it in 2019 and he came fourth in 2018. Cantlay missed the cut at the US PGA Championship, however, he has lost in two playoffs this season which suggests his 8th win on the PGA Tour is on the tip of his tongue. He is currently ranked fourth in birdie average and 21st in total strokes gained.

Cameron Young - 35/1

Much like Davis Riley, Cameron Young is on the verge of superstardom. Young has finished in the top five in his last three events, including the US PGA Championship. He is ranked fifth in birdie average, seventh in scoring average and 10th in strokes gained in total. The 25-year-old was playing on the Korn Ferry Tour this time last year, now he is ranked 30th in the world so you need to strike while the iron is hot.
